Glad to see they gave Ervin a handful of snaps last night. I think he brings a little more quickness and elusiveness to the offense. He doesn't need to play a lot, and he doesn't have to get the ball more than once or twice to be an effective piece.

Hopefully they put Detroit away early and get some of these guys who are logging high snap counts some rest.

Remember how fickle this game is. Rodgers received an unnecessary concussion last year in this same game.

Hopefully put them away early and rest these players who are needed in playoffs.

Agreed Dobber, I would love to see some of the older guys play half the game in Detroit and then head for the bench. Some extra recovery time at this point in the season would be very welcome.

As soon as he got his first play on offense I thought... Dobbers going to be happy about that one.

I said I would be against it during the week, but I did like what they did with him in limited snaps. I'll take that over gmo everyday

Thanks Al.

I really enjoyed that summary. I had to watch that one on TV and try to catch all the numbers and watch the details, but there are limitations. A couple of the non-superstars who I did watch and thought they played solid+ games included Fackrell and Lowry. Signing Lowry and letting Mike Daniels who was a stalwart for a goodly number of years walk has proven to be the correct call.

Thumbs up on that info.

I luke the increase for Lazard, although he didnt have his best day, he still made some crucial plays. Another game with that kind of volume will do nothing but make him better. A good trend there.

I also like Kumerow I jumping MVS for time as well. Id like him above Allison too, he brings more than either of those two in both phases of the game.

If AR can get used to both Lazard and Kumerow as #2 and #3, and the more reps they get, the better this team will be. And if we can draft a quick twitch slit WR in the draft, we may have the makibgs of a solid WR corp.

I also like how MLF seems to be looking for ways to adapt as the season progresses. He's got a lot to learn yet but hes showing a wilingness to do so and thats a good sign.

Kumerow is not an NFL WR and its clear why he bounces around the PSs forever. Thats why he did not jump anyone.

MVS and Brown can be really good, together with Adams thats a great group. Allison and Lazard will round it up.
But to reach there potentiall, we need AR play like a top 10 QB again. thats all it takes

It looks like they are getting the WR snap count in line with what we've seen on the field through 15 games. That's nice.

77 offensive snaps to 54 defensive snaps is music to my ears. Especially when losing the turnover battle by a 3 to 1 margin.

Hank agreed!

However, still believe they havent figured out the TE situation and this will hurt them. 53% for Graham and 30% for Tonyan. Totally unacceptable! Of course Tonyan missed about 5 games with injury but Packers seem to not have figured out how to use him. His speed and maneuverability down field would help immeasurably. Graham really should be used for only specific situations.

In a defensive masterpiece, M. Adams and K. Keke get one snap each. I can give Keke a pass as a developmental rookie, but third year pro Adams has absolutely disappeared after all of the preseason hoopla. I suspect he is gone after this season.

It appears Lazard is becoming our #2 WR and I concur with 4zone that I would like to see more of Kumerow and less of Allison. I think Allison may also be a short timer with the team.

I am so glad I don't have to make my living evaluating football talent because in preseason I thought both M. Adams and Allison might have big seasons for the Packers. Yikes! Go Gute Go!

Kumerow runs better routes, has the best hands outside of Adams and blocks probably the best of the receivers helping our run game as well. He isn't Jerry Rice or Marvin Harrison, but can be quite valuable in how MLF wants to run this offense. We still need a legit #2 though, but #3and #4 are solid.

The viking drives were so short, and the defense was on the field so little, there wasn't a significant need to rotate out tired linemen. I am also disappointed Adams couldn't find a bigger role, but i dont think this game is the one to point to as an example.

The first 4 names on the ST only snap count are very interesting.
None had even 1 snap on defense.

I thought Gary was making progress and I am surprised at his low snap count last night especially seeing Z Smith getting oxygen on the sideline . Maybe they will let him play more against the Lions.

The Smiths combined for 8 snaps off the field. Gary had 15 snaps...

When Z Smith is wrecking a game like that, he should be on the field as much as possible. Looks to me like Gary gave both smiths some rest, and then some

I like the snap count articles, there is always something to be taken from the numbers.

Too much reliance on the Smiths (as usual).................but in a game of this magnitude I'm ok with it............most especially if it is mitigated by gaining a bye week in the playoffs.

Valdes-Scantling is bumping along at a very modest 11 snaps again this week. Whether he can ever rise to a genuine no.2 will be seen next year. Lazard had 58 snaps, twice Kumerow's and not far from twice Allison's. It's pretty clear he is the default no.2 receiver.

Sullivan had a very respectable 41 total snaps (26 on def and 15 on ST). As for one of my great hopes on defense this year, Montravius Adams, one single snap on defense (and 6 on ST)............. either he is gone next year, or there is an injury problem that isn't being reported (I'm guessing he busts, but hope for a better result).

Fingers crossed for a win against the Lions (probable) and a Seahawks win over the 49ers (at least possible) to get to the Packers to the no.1 NFC seed and all Packers NFC playoff games going through Lambeau field, in January.

T,
Completely in agreement with you.

Thought Adam's was going to flourish and become a heck of a player. Appears to me he simply doesnt have the internal fortitude to become the player he could be. He is gone next year! Pack could use another lineman next year.

MVS....lack of production I completely do not understand! 6'4" with his speed of 4.37 in 40. Plus, another factor no one ever discusses but he has the biggest hands ever! Something like 10.5 inches which for a WR has to be a God send!

He must lack the innate ability to fully understand the offense and scramble ability. Cannot wait for ESB to come back next year. He is a player!

Exactly Cubbygold. The Smiths and Kenny Clark should get subbed more, in normal situations.

The game against the Vikings was not the usual situation, the playoff implications made it a game where the rules could change a bit and justify a heavier reliance on key guys.

It's the same with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. I'm good with a 60/40 usage between Jones and Williams, but I wouldn't like to see those numbers get bigger for Jones unless the situation was extraordinary.

Got it. Yeah Ive been a big fan of keeping williams involved for a number of reasons. Can certainly see how a few snaps of rest for the smiths would be beneficial in a more normal game situation. I hope the lion game is the first big blowout of the year and the smiths can take a break for gary

Thanks for the Snap Counts Al!

I was glad that the recently signed veteran back-up tackle Jared Veldheer got some snaps on ST to get his Green Bay Packer's feet wet, as he had been out of action a while and was waived injured earlier this year. ( with New England ).

Never know when a back-up tackle may have to step up and best he have some live game day snaps to re-acclimate to the game.

Same too, with Lucas Patrick getting some snaps at center.

He and Veldheer are the most likely O-Line guys to step into the game if necessary.

Great game and on to Detroit!

Lucas Patrick did not get any snaps at center. He is a regular member of one or two of the ST units, I believe the field goal and extra point units. Hunter Bradley was the center on those plays.
